jet-airline.jpg(Middletown) -- Harrisburg International Airport was temporarily shut down by a disabled plane last night, but has now resumed normal operations.

Officials at HIA say flights should be back on schedule starting Wednesday morning.

Spokesman Scott Miller says the airport's only runway closed Tuesday around 9:30 p.m. after a private plane touched down and its landing gear collapsed.

The pilot, who was the only passenger, was unhurt. But the single-engine aircraft remained disabled on the runway for about two hours.

The airport announced shortly after midnight that normal operations had resumed.
